I was involved in a hit and run car accident yesterday on the 1-10 going east. I was hit twice on the rear of my car by a 95-96 White Dogde Pick up truck. The man who hit me asked me to move to the side to get information, and took that opportunity to run. He looked out of it like intoxicated with alcohol and drugs. If it was this person, I want to know what I can do or what proceeds from here because Im am pressing charges on him for leaving at the scene of an accident and bodily injury.
